Spring Hustle

Written by

My goodness, what a week! The sun is out, the flowers are blooming their heads off and we’re literally running to keep up. I think early spring is one of the most exhausting times of the year since we have to straddle so many areas at once. Sowing seeds like a maniac, planting babies out in the field as fast as we can manage, keeping ahead of the lush spring weed growth and harvesting greenhouse blooms that come on rapidly with any hint of sun. It’s beautiful, tiring, thrilling and overwhelming all at the same time! The last of this weeks orders headed to the city at 3:30 a.m. this morning with my sweet husband. He cheerfully runs the delivery route before heading to his 8-5 as a mechanic and shop foreman. Craziness I tell ya! Now it’s time for me to switch gears from the fast pace hustle to being calm and creative because my dear friend Georgianna is coming this afternoon for a little photo-shoot!

p.s. This week’s Seasonal Bouquet Project entry was a beauty and we’ve added a way for you to join in the fun!

    So gorgeous. It literally brings tears to my eyes! (It snowed here again this evening and I am craving spring in the worst way!). Thanks for sharing a beautiful glimpse of the fruit of your labour! It’s been food for my soul.

    Beautiful as always – you are a true inspiration. I love that, here in Ireland, we can grow the same flowers although I have a very small farm! I love to look at your creations and dream of what could be!

    Hi Erin,

    Your pictures tell the story! I can almost feel the vibe…
    And then you also make some time to write a newsletter!

    The first time I read your blog was an eye opener. We already grow cutflowers for wholesale in the autumn: skimmia, ilex, hypericum and malus, but I got so excited about the seasonal flowers you use (You really make beautiful bouquets!!) that I bought a lot of seeds of all kinds of flowers.
    Overhere in the Netherlands you can buy almost any flower you want, also out of the season (not always of good quality…) but it’s really exciting to grow different varieties of fresh seasonal flowers in my own garden. Especially the ones you can’t find in the local flowershop.
    So I give it a try to find out if it works for me.

    Thanks for sharing your passion!!
